John F. Kennedy

“The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie—deliberate, contrived and dishonest—but the myth: persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.”   President John F. Kennedy, Commencement Address at Yale University, 11 June 1962.

  1. This is a powerful and pertinent observation. I was watching a news show which talked about the systematic piling on of myths, lies that Donald Trump espouses to corner the market of attention. The point was it is a cascade of myths that are so pervasive. And, his followers care not that he is telling untruths as it is pervasive. Good quote. Keith
